Kelly Clarkson was on the bill for benefit acoustic concert A Night For Hope in Nashville last night, and — squee! — the singer performed a new song, “You Still Won’t Know What It’s Like.” Not only is the track single-worthy already, Clarkson once again proved she’s got one of the best voices in pop. Jump below to listen!
“You haven’t seen the ghost that I’ve seen / You haven’t lived enough to know what I mean,” sings Kelly on this sad-but-strong ballad, produced by Jason Halbert. (He also produced Kelly’s angry 2007 single “Never Again.”) And that belt at 3:12! If ears could smile, ours would be grinning ear to, uh, ear.
We’re assuming this will be on Kelly’s upcoming album (coming out not soon enough), but as she previously tweeted back in October, “We’re gonna have way too many songs to pick from ….and that part sucks.”
We hope she picks “You Still Don’t Know What It’s Like”, because we like it! And we’re sure you Clarkson fans out there do, too, but feel free to tell us how much in the comments.
